As the secondary ticketing debate continues to rumble on and on and on, face value ticket reseller Twickets has expanded into the international market with the launch of a new Australia-based operation.
The company has recruited former head of ticketing at Global Live Danny Hannaford to head up the operation, which will be based in Melbourne.
The operation will seek to forge partnerships with Australia’s leading promoters, managers and venues.
Founder of Twickets Richard Davies commented: “We are very excited about the launch in Australia and to welcome Danny to the team. Having someone as experienced in the ticketing market as him to head up the Australian operation is a big step towards Twickets’ goals for international development in 2017”.
Twickets recently raised over £1.2m from around 900 investors on crowdfunding platform Seedrs and now has its sights set on global expansion, with launches in the US and mainland Europe also planned for 2017.
